    There are so many good tips and ideas for budding animators to try in this boxed set; they will be busy for hours and hours! The box itself is a two-sided set for your animation videos: one is the outside of a gloomy castle and the other is a dungeon. Sturdy cardboard flaps drop down and open to the side to expand the set, and includes a window and a door that opens. These can make for some fun lighting effects! There are also goodies in the box like a detailed handbook with step by step instructions to create several types of animation and lots of fun cardstock props. Also included are devices and props:5 speech bubbles, a zoetrope disk/drum/strip and a thaumatrope (illusion devices), lunar and tropical island props (2 sided) with a 2-sided background, press-on features for your characters, a 2-D monster puppet, a workbench prop, and 2 storyboard starters. The real meat of this set is the 32 pg. book with all of its ideas and color illustrations. Learn about creating a character, telling a story, traditional/cutout/2D/board/clay animation, complex model making, sets, props, lights, object animation, pixilation and editing. A camera or cell phone is necessary but not included. ~ Sara

    When my children were younger, every December we put aside our books and did a month-long focused study on Christmas. One year we studied the Christmas story, another Christmas traditions around the world and yet another year, we focused on the history of Christmas Carols. What I love about this unit study is that it masterfully unites each of these into one inclusive study.

    Beginning with a detailed study of the birth of Jesus, it then surveys the history of our Christmas celebrations. Designed to take an hour or more, each of the fifteen lessons includes Bible study, history, geography, science, art, poetry, grammar and the stories of Christmas carols. Children will also write (or younger ones will dictate) five essays about Jesus and what following Him means in real life. Two booklets are completed during this study: "A Baby Book for Jesus" and "Christmas Traditions Around the World." Complete instructions and a craft supply list are included. While most supplies are things you will have at home, others are easily found at your local hobby stores. Author Charlene Notgrass also includes a list of read-aloud selections, but feel free to use your family favorites to make a more memorable Christmas experience. Books are consumable; each child will need his own copy. Lesson recommendations and answer key included. Spiral Bound. Scripture references NASB. ~ Deanne

    Includes 52 cards --13 books of 4 cards each. For example, a book of aces contains the ace of spades, hearts, diamonds, and clubs all with an illustration of the same inventor. On each card is an illustration of an inventor with his name, where he came from, and when he lived. A list of different inventions and discoveries is on each card. There is also general information at the bottom of the card. In order to know all of the information contained in this deck on a particular inventor, you must collect all four cards of that inventor. The rules of this game are similar to those of Go Fish, but the goal is to collect books of cards, not pairs of cards. Any other card game using a standard deck can also be played. Inventors included in this game are Archimedes, Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Alva Edison, Michael Faraday, Benjamin Franklin, Johannes Gutenberg, Cyrus H. McCormick, Guglielmo Marconi, Samuel F. B. Morse, George Stephenson, James Watt, Eli Whitney, and the Wright Brothers. - Hilary

     Right- Brained Time, Money & Measurement is an engaging resource to teach practical skills to children from 5-8 years of age. Like the others in this series, the targeted learner is the visual or right brain although it may benefit children of all learning types. Concepts are taught through images, stories, hands-on activities, and patterns: all designed to engage and target a child’s natural learning strengths. Divided into 3 sections, one for each of the targeted skills, lessons begin with simple concepts and increase in difficulty. It is recommended you only go as far as your student is ready, depending on age and level. Part I, Time, covers everything from introducing the hands on a clock (Ollie Hour, Molly Minute, and Sammy Second), to future and elapsed time, and to estimating time. In Money, children are introduced to the different money denominations and end with adding money and making change. The final section, Measurement, focuses on measuring temperature, length, perimeter, area, weight, and volume. Resources for practicing the skills taught in the book and an answer key are included. Depending on your child, you may wish to add a clock, play money or measuring cups (not required). You will need a 12” ruler, measuring tape (or yard stick), kitchen scale, bathroom scale, and a food thermometer. The final section also includes cooking activities, so other common household and food items will be necessary. This is a wonderful resource to engage your child’s learning practical math skills.

     Love the idea of unschooling, but struggle to find a balance between too much unproductive time and a strictly scheduled day? This resource may provide the perfect balance. Subtitled, “The Beginner’s Journal”, this animal and farm themed curriculum gently guides learning in several areas including reading, handwriting, logic, spelling, classic literature and music, mathematics including practice in addition, subtraction, and multiplication, creative writing, and more.

      Due to the open-ended nature of this course, you will notice repetition in many of the activity pages. For example, the backyard science/nature walk study pages, animals of the world, and reading time pages allow children to document varied observations and studies. Many struggling learners thrive on familiarity, which helps create a fun learning experience for struggling or younger students. Parents will need to assist their children in choosing topics of study, completion of some activities and securing additional, recommended resources.

      Recommended educational resources include a computer with your own Minecraft world, audio books, Story of the World for the Classical Child, Classical music CDs, a variety of educational videos and movies, and a math curriculum (Life of Fred or Math-U-See are suggested). Necessary school supplies include pencils, colored pencils, gel pens, origami paper, and a ruler. Assorted dyslexia games from the author’s Series A and B are included, and the Dyslexie font is utilized. Author states a child may work in this book up to 3 hours daily for 6 weeks, with 30 minutes of computer time 3 days per week, although flexibility allows you to fit to your family’s needs. Reproducible for children in your household. Black and white graphics. SC. 294 pgs. ~Deanne

      Targeting a slightly older crowd, this flexible curriculum resource may inspire delight-directed learning in your family. In this (mostly) self-study, children begin by choosing topics they wish to study and take steps to achieve their goals. Tips for wisely choosing resources while using these recommended resources: computer access and personal Minecraft world, audio books, Story of the World for the Classical Child, Classical music, Google Earth and parent-approved news sources, educational videos and movies, and a math curriculum (Life of Fred or Math U See suggested). Listed are also a few necessary supplies: pencils, colored pencils, gel pens, origami paper, and a ruler.

      The heart of this course is the gentle, guiding learning in an array of subject areas including reading, creative writing, spelling and vocabulary, classical literature and music, mathematics (open ended to use with your math curriculum), science, geography, current events and much more. Comparing this to the author’s Fun-Schooling Curriculum: Homeschooling with Minecraft, you will note overlapping activities but a different focus. The aforementioned course includes an animal and farm theme designed to engage younger learners, whereas the DIY Curriculum is written for a slightly older crowd and focuses on Geography and “world news today” events. Woven throughout the course are research projects to learn about mining in the real world, which provides a fascinating “rabbit trail” to a Minecraft study.

      If you are wondering which of the Thinking Tree Minecraft studies would best fit your child, younger children who thrive when working more directly with a parent, may find the Fun-Schooling Curriculum: Homeschooling with Minecraft (#068704) a better option. While the reading level recommended for this course is grade 2 and up, many of the research activities and world studies seem better fit for an older child. Other activities like the backyard science nature walk and study may work with all ages. Another consideration in selecting these activities is the student’s ability to concentrate for longer periods of time. While the author does not define computer time in this course, her general guidelines for daily study are 5 pages per day for 10 years and under and 10 pages per day for 10 years and up (2-4 hours per day). Repetition is also built into this curriculum guide allowing students to study various aspects of Minecraft in a similar fashion.

    Fifty events beginning with September 28, 480 B.C. and concluding with September 11, 2001, were chosen for their impact on world history. The author's choice of these important dates and events comes from a secular view of history. He includes the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ on Good Friday 30 A.D. as the start of the Christian era. Other events include: the death of Muhammad, the coronation of Charlemagne, the founding of Jamestown, VA, the fall of the Bastille, Alexander Graham Bell discovers the telephone, the Boxer rebellion, Operation Barbarossa, the bombing of Hiroshima and the release from prison of Nelson Mandela. He explains what may have happened in the world if these events had gone differently. I think it would be interesting for students to read this book and then create their own list of events that they feel changed the world. ~ Sara

    It's a fact: as a whole, children in America are becoming increasingly less and less literate in knowledge about the Bible and especially the true gospel of Christ. In Romans, Paul says that "Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God" – who will your children hear the Word of God from? Former Christianity Today editor V. Gilbert Beers has put together this collection of 365 Bible stories, not with children in mind, but for you as the parent. This resource will help you see the Bible chronologically as a whole, beginning with Creation through the Early Church. With a clear view and understanding, you'll then be able to more effectively recount truths to your own children, helping it to come alive in their own lives as they grow older. Please note that in the chapter on Creation, Beers is undecided as to whether a "day" represents 24 hours or not. If you don't want to overlook this point, use it to spark discussion of your own views. 400 pgs., pb. –Chad
